Plein air paintings. gouache. approx 5 x 3 1/2 inches. 2013.
I paint these at my local Regional Park. I love it here because it is local, yet still has many sites that are wild. I try to keep these at about 45 min. I am studying sun light and colors found in nature.
Plein-air work. gouache on watercolor paper.
relatively small & quick. These studies help me to make quick decisions, study natural color & light, to apply to my personal paintings, & to my background painting aspirations. 2012
Pastel thumbs. each approx 1 3/4 x 1 1/2". from photo & out doors. Studying natural light & color while thinking about story. Looking for those unnamed neutral earth tones, with slight variations in an area, & a few accents of saturated color.
copies of animation bg's. cel vinyl paint. thumbs approx 1 3/4 x 1 1/2".
I'm concerned with value, describing space, & composition.
